We're in Montreal for New Years evening, and we're looking for a small restaurant or bar to spend the evening in. Ange & Ricky's, for example -- the small Haitian restaurant that's been recommended on this board -- would be perfect, but they're closed on NYE.
So here are the ingredients of what we're looking for: something with character (interesting or diverse people around, maybe interesting food culture), a place that's small and intimate, and open till midnight on NYE. I'm less concerned about the quality of the meal or the drinks, and more looking for a sweet, interesting, or odd place to spend the evening, where they won't mind if we're there for a few hours, for the midnight countdown! Bar or restaurant OK. Any thoughts, Montreal chowhounders? Is this a realizable dream?
(Am interested in these kinds of recommendations in general as well, even if they're not open on NYE...)
